EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands -

- Flexible, Future-Proof System Rapidly Deployed in Austria and Hungary With Poland to Follow This Year

eventIS, a SeaChange International company, announces the roll-out of a new VOD back office suite with UPC Broadband in Austria and Hungary, with Poland to follow later this year. Part of eventIS’ converged Service Delivery Platform (cSDP), the solution extends UPC’s existing EPG functionality with true VOD, enabling a fully integrated service based on mature, proven software. Furthermore, it provides UPC with an evolution path towards convergent multi-play service delivery, offering content on multiple devices at home and on the move.

The first system is already live with UPC Austria. A second system has been deployed with UPC Hungary and went live in August. A third system with UPC Poland will follow in November.

“eventIS is proud to be working with a leading cable operator like UPC Broadband. Their vision that ‘this amazing but often complex digital world should be for everyone’ aligns perfectly with our vision of personalized TV, available anytime and on any device. Our VOD back office suite is helping UPC streamline and add flexibility to its back-office processes, so it can continue to offer an easy-to-use, cost-effective and exciting service for years to come,” says Erwin van Dommelen, President, eventIS.

The new suite is based on the eventIS’ PRODIS and TRAXIS products. Optional modules can be added to these core components to design a back-office system tailored to a customer’s specific needs. The suite is scalable and has redundancy built in, so service providers can maintain a complete service under any conditions.

The VOD back-office suite features open interfaces based on standard metadata specifications, useful for companies such as UPC broadband who use a multi-vendor platform architecture. It also has the flexibility to support new developments, allowing operators to future-proof their offering with services such as time-shifting and restart TV.
